Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo e lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa atu. Namaste and Kumusta. Greetings everyone at Linwood College and our wider LCŌ Community
I hope everyone is doing well as we are settling into the new school term. I know that the past few weeks have been a large paradigm shift for all of us, so I just wanted to say a few words on the current online learning situation. The best advice I can give you during these times is to learn at least one thing a day. Nobody is expecting that the amount of work that one can accomplish will be the same as before the lockdown. There can be technological issues, family issues, or even just personal issues during this lockdown that will impact how much you can learn, and that is fine. We are all in a new learning environment (even the teachers), so do not feel bad if you can not do 100%. If you are having any issues with any of your subjects, reach out to your teachers, they will understand your situation and help you work around it.
If you are feeling overwhelmed with the amount of school work, just attempt to learn something, because learning something is better than learning nothing. For me personally, I am quite self-motivated and can learn quite well by myself, but not everyone is like that, and there is nothing wrong with that. This learning environment is a difficult situation for everyone involved, so do your best. So everyone, especially any juniors needing to go back to onsite supervision learning shortly, make sure to stay safe. We will get through this.
